Last performance mods

Well, this is about as far as you can go. Going to order bbk long tubes and catted x pipe. Also ordering a 80mm TB. That then completes the car! So let's see air raid CAI, sct4 w/BAMA tune, 3.73 gears, MBRP axle backs, 2013 GT wheels w/ Pirelli 19" tires. Dang I think it'll be finished!!

Well that's true. You've got a milder axle-back so it should be alright with the long tubes / catted x.

If you didn't like the 3.73 gears you're going to hate this setup. It will be loud and raspy.

I actually love the 3.73's....but I do miss cruising with the 2.73's! But with the MBRP Axleback being extremely mild....I think it's going to be ok!

I know there are tons of suspension upgrades...I did put lowering springs on. Making it as fast as I can was my first priority along with the springs and wheels and tires for the "look". The grill was upgraded before I bought it and it looks awesome! I just flat out love this body style of the 2011!

you can get ported manifolds, aluminum driveshaft, suspension, a better tune steeda, lund, mpt.. i personally wouldnt put that big of a throttle body on a N/A 3.7 it might work on a boosted one but there's no way that thing is gonna help you in N/A form... i know there's a few guys who have put it on and "say" it works but i havent seen proof with dyno runs or 1/4 mile times.

With sledgehammer producing them for 180.00(80mm TB) that's way cheaper then AM! Who knows what the future brings.....I'm not going to play with tunes. The DS is a good idea....won't make it faster, but safer! But, really I'm pretty satisfied with where it's at! It's come a long way from when I first got it!

We've also seen a guy put on the 80mm, then back to the stock 67mm and say the stock TB felt better. Took it down the track and showed no difference in times or MPH between the 2.

Well that's a pretty blanket statement...was exhaust modified and to what extent. Was his car tuned?? 80mm TB is only going to work hand in with these mods!

80mm is way to big NA no matter what mods you have. It's getting old seeing ppl throw it around as fact and people believe it. Until you see proven dyno runs and track times etc it will still be wrong

The 80mm may provide some gains down low in the curve, but yeah, i did the math forever ago and the TB is not the restrictive point in the intake tract - all the way from air filter to cylinder heads.


A few things i've noticed but didnt feel like quoting 50 times.

1. Wanting to go "as fast as you can," suspension is a very important part and makes a huge difference, especially if you are lowered with no other supporting mods.

2. Aluminum driveshaft, lighter clutch, things like that do make a massive difference in acceleration, same with ditching those incredibly heavy GT wheels. Rough, ricer, drag strip math says losing 100 lbs = .1 in the 1/4. It also says losing 1 lb of rotating mass is the same as losing 4 of dead weight. So, just removing those (i'm assuming their the PP 19 x 9s) 60 lb rim and tire combo and going to something like an 18 x 10 drift, or even like a dedicated 15 x 10 darkstar, you could see a MASSIVE increase in speed.

3. You will have more to gain with a tune other than bama

SO because you heard Magnaflows on some guys Vette you automatically dissmiss them from your list? Dude...need to get your facts straightened out. Mag Streets are by far the mildest of the axel backs (that I have heard) out there. Mag Comps however are noisy Pypes knock offs. Waste of money.

+1 LT and X pipe alone are going to kill whatever sound you have at this time...no bueno.

Noisy is very general. Do you mean loud, raspy, droney, etc.? A lot of people on here misuse those terms or use them interchangabely. Also a lot have not heard the different exhaust set ups in person so they don't know.
Magna flow is a brand. There are a lot of different ones, all that sound different. Can't say "magnaflows are noisy". That's like saying borla is noisy. Tourings and ATAKs are exact opposites lol.
